BREAKING NEWS: Some Professor(s) in the University of Minnesota classified IEEE Conferences in China as Junk Conferences

A simple visit in the following link hosted in a server of the University of Minnesota will convince you:
http://blog.lib.umn.edu/denis036/thisweekinevolution/2011/07/would_ieee_really_sponsor_a_fa.html


They say:
Would IEEE really sponsor a fake conference in China?
The email was typical fake-scientific-conference-in-China spam: "we courteously invite you to deliver a Plenary Speech" as a "leading authority" in a field where I have no expertise. I've gotten several of these from "BIT Life Sciences."

This time, though, IEEE, a (formerly?) respectable engineering organization, was listed as a sponsor. I assumed the scam was using IEEE's name without permission, but the "6th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering " is actually listed on the IEEE web site. Apparently, IEEE has been involved in many fake conferences, which have, for example, accepted papers that are computer-generated garbage. Sad.

I don't mean to imply that all conferences in China are fake -- I went to one a few years ago that was excellent, and am scheduled to speak at another -- or that fake conferences happen only in China. They do seem to have more than their share, though.

BREAKING NEWS. A huge IEEE Multiconference has accepted several SCIgen (fake) papers.

We have found an interesting post in http://netdriver.blogspot.com/2011/07/following-ieee-conference-has-accepted.html
They say:


The following IEEE Multi-Conference has accepted several SCIgen (fake) (i.e. papers with absolutely quite random phrases).
The organisers sent letter of acceptance for the several fake (SCIgen) papers
and now they try to claim that they did not send any letter of acceptance.
One more fraud from the criminal IEEE
